Some sources attest that, already by 1770, the mill belonged to a consortium of several families.
The Petit Monde residents used to cultivate cereals - the agricultural terracing around Etirol bears witness to that - and used the mill to dehull cereals and to produce flour, which was used to produce bread only once a year. For this reason, the mill is equipped with a grinder-like vertical millstone, which is visible the outside of the building, and a horizontal millstone.
The mill was in use until the end of the 1980s, and remains operational to this day.
It was told that the stonecutter who made the millstone, which goes back to 1903, was paid 60 Italian lire and a polenta dish each day.
